Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Pottawattamie County, Craig M. Dreismeier, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Danilson, C.J., and Vogel and Tabor, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (5 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her minor child, born in 2017.  On appeal, the mother argues the State failed to prove the statutory grounds for termination by clear and convincing evidence and termination is not in the best interests of the child because it would be detrimental to the child’s mental and emotional wellbeing.  OPINION HOLDS: Upon our de novo review of the record, we agree with the conclusions of the juvenile court and affirm the termination order.
